” THE ESCAPE”
Stylized works are among my favorites, I’ve always been intrigued with driftwood. Sometimes I see a fish trying to get out, other times the wood just tells me what it wants to be.This stylized Brown has been one of my most talked about creations, frankly, I don’t even know who owns it now as It was sold out of one the Galleries that feature my works.  – Jim Wiley

#1506 is a realistic 14 inch Rainbow Trout, focused on a fixed fly.

Among the roots of the clearwater streams of northeaster Tennessee run the bright colors of the rainbow. Also known as Onchorinchis mykiss, the rainbow trout. This is not a native to the waters east of the Rocky Mountains, but its presence has been here long enough to have earned squatter’s rights and the love of generations of fly-fishing hominids.

#1536 is a realistic Wiley Wood Sculpture of a 14 inch Rainbow Trout, caught in the act of warily glimpsing a snagged fly. The presentation has been placed and balanced on on a fine piece of river driftwood, from the very pool where you could expect to hook-up with this beauty.

You CAN hook-up with this little WileyTrout gem by casting your gaze to the WileyTrout Store. Click the link here Rainbow #1536.

Leaping stylized bown trout #1507

Rocketing out of this beautiful piece of river driftwood #1507 is a stylized Brown Trout, created in the true #itsawiley tradition.

I let the wood ‘talk to me’ and this is what it said, “Leaping brown trout in full rocket for a passing mayfly on the wing.” And that is what you get.

Emerging out of the wood leaping for a meal that both you and the trout are forever locked into the possibility.

This fine piece of Wiley Wood Sculpting is available for purchase in the WileyTrout Store – #1507 Brown Trout Stylized .

Better nab this little critter soon before he leaps off the stage of available goodies and onto the shelf of a new, Master of its Imagination.

10 inch Dolly Varden Trout glimpsing a snagged fly.  DOLLY HAS BEEN SOLD..!!

Dolly, a Varden by any other name …

The latest creation to appear from the creative WileyTrout zone, is a beauty called ‘Dolly’.  She is, by all standards, a rare and pleasant thing-of-beauty to behold. She is a Dolly Varden.  Sleek and colorful, she has eye catching lily-white fin tips; native of her species known as the Char.

She resembles the other beauty of her kin, the eye catching, heart pounding Brook Trout.  But, Dolly feeds in a bigger pool and comes from stock that produce size as well as beauty. For the Dolly Varden can grow to such an alarming size, that mere mortal fishermen swoon at the pulsation of this lady – or her kin – upon their teasing lines of petrochemical persuasion and steel.

‘Tis with great glee we announce that Dolly has already been taken.

She quickly stole a heart and is now being prepared to be whisked off to a new home.

Yes, her stay was brief, but her memory will linger with the fragrance of her beauty, for a long, long time.  Maybe one day soon, the creator Wiley will deem there be another .. maybe a Dallas .. in the line of Varden.  We will have to wait and see.

Farewell, Dolly.  You gave us great palpitation while you were here. We shall hold your image in great admiration.  We look forward to hearing from your new partner in visual pleasure, as to how the union is holding.  Our best on your new journey.

This little beauty is just waiting to jump into YOUR pool. Order it up now from the WileyTrout Store. Enjoy!

 

#1530,   Just finished this little 8 inch Brookie today. It’s a stylized piece created entirely from California Buckeye Burl. This beautiful wood grows only on the western slope of the Sierra mountains at altitude above 2,000 feet. When finished out it has the appearance of river stone. My most popular works are from this wood. My supply is limited and I hope it lasts at least  as long as I do.

About  a year ago my neighbor cut down a tree and found it hollow  at the trunk. He cut it into rounds and gave it to me saying, ” I thought you might be able to do something with these “, so, this is one of the things I did. I wish I knew what kind of wood it is .

Stylized Brook Trout
Stylized Brook Trout

These stylized works are my favorite creations. Most times I see the fish before I start. Other times I have to just like the wood and begin and the fish tells me where it is.  #itsawiley  #wileytrout
